PFP (Personal Futures Planning)

Personal Futures Planning focuses on what the team can do to address the themes or issues identified within a personal profile or other person centered process (Mount, 1987; Mount & Zwernick, 1988). In Personal Futures Planning, the team identifies an appropriate time frame for achieving a futures plan that specifically addresses themes and issues in five areas (home, school, community, choices and preferences, and relationships.) This process can be very effective, even when some of the team members do not know the focus child very well, because it gives the team a comprehensive understanding of many important areas of the child’s life (Kincaid & Fox, 2002).
